Noise when reversing

wonder if anyone has had this problem, I collected my new 147 and when i got it home and reversed into a parking space there was an almost metalic sounding noise comming from underneath the car when i was reversing. It went into reverse ok and all the other gears are ok.

Im not sure if it was the pads sticking seeing as the car had been had on the forcourt for a while, was thinking of seeing what it was like this week then get it looked at.

Anyone had this problem?

Re: Noise when reversing

Probably the dustcovers behind the brakediscs touching the discs, quite a common thing on both 147 and 156. Or brakediscs disintegrating due to rust.
